Sept. 26 crab feast a fitting finale for summer that was great in 21228 [Column]

As the season comes to a close, the chamber wants to thank our community for helping make the summer of 2014 such a tremendous success.

The Frederick Road Fridays concerts drew record crowds and with your support and the hard work of the chamber's volunteer partners, $12,525 was raised for local non-profit and civic groups. What's more, the event provided great exposure for our business sponsors and those members with booths at the event, along with an increase in foot traffic on Friday evenings for the village restaurants and shops.


The 41st annual Catonsville Arts and Crafts Festival's goal each year is to bring attention to the town of Catonsville while providing a vehicle for our members to promote their businesses. Along with raising $3,000 for our local Boys & Girls Scout troops and $5,000 for the Catonsville Community Foundation, the festival brought an estimated 20,000 visitors to our town. Also local businesses such as Bill's Music and The Hub C'Ville Bikes held music concerts and events of their own to add to the day's festivities.

The chamber will end the season with its 56th annual crab feast and auction on Friday, Sept. 26 at the Lodge. The evening includes all the crabs you can eat steamed on site by Harris Seafood, a delicious buffet provided by Monaghan's Pub, beer and sodas.


Clueless about the Maryland crustacean? Never fear! You'll never be far from a self-proclaimed master of the art of cracking the Chesapeake blue crab, so even if you are a novice, be sure to join us for one of Catonsville's best events! The evening is topped off with a sports memorabilia auction and a fun twist on the 50/50 raffle.

Tickets are $60 each, or a table of 10 for $550, and can be purchased at or by calling the chamber office at 410-719-9609. Get those crab mallets ready and join us on Sept. 26 for the perfect ending to a great summer.
